Help support families in need

VOLUNTEERS with parenting experience are needed by Home-Start Worthing and Adur.

The charity, based in Thorn Road, Worthing, needs people willing to help support families in their local community.

The aim is to spend two to three hours a week giving emotional and practical support to families struggling to cope with postnatal depression, bereavement, disability, multiple births or the feeling of isolation.

A new preparation course will be running in Worthing on September 23, providing comprehensive training and an opportunity to receive accreditation.

To apply, e-mail or call 01903 236916. All expenses will be reimbursed.

Home-Start is also looking for trustees. To find out more, contact Frances Borrer on 07711 748263 or manager Hilda Sherwood on 01903 236916, email
